Create an itinerary including Kerry Park
Head to Kerry Park for views of Seattle, complete with the Space Needle in the foreground of the city skyline. Watch ferries traversing Elliott Bay, see the twinkling city lights, or, on a clear day, spot Mt. Rainier in the distance. This panoramic scene is worth the uphill walk to the park, but the park itself is small and, therefore, typically only used as a place for taking postcard perfect photos and simply enjoying the view. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Seattle holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kerry Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It's just a small roadside overlook, instead of a park I would say. It only has a few benches and it's quite small. However, it has the best skyline to take pictures with Space Needle! You can see the Space Needle very clear from here and the view is really good. You can see downtown Seattle clearly. Recommend if you want to take some good photos of Space Needle! This park is free, easy to visit by bus.
  • One of the best skyline views of downtown Seattle! Depending on how clear the sky is, you can catch Mount Rainier in the background showing it's beautiful face. The weather can be moody so you might not get the full view but nonetheless... Still pretty impressive!
